Social Buzz, Google’s +1, and Extra Cash Systems!
Tuesday, 5 April 2011
Here’s a post, Extra Cash Systems Weblog Readers, published on the Traffic Master blog…
Much ado has been, and is being made about “social buzz” and Google’s latest announcement about “+1″. I think it’s fascinating the “buzz” around all this.
Now, I am NOT dismissing anything here, because the thing is, is this, there’s been “social buzz” from the “git go” of the internet. How else do you think that Mr. Gore knew about the “internet”? Someone told him!
Now we have Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and Google… Arguably the most popular, and visited sites on the internet. And again, they got to be that way through “social buzz”. Usually through someone emailing someone else about something they found.
Then, some bright individual came up with “bookmarking” sites, a way for people to “share” their favorite places on the internet. From there, the search engines used those sites to figure out that the bookmarked places were important to those who were bookmarking them, so they began to give those bookmarked sites better placement in the SERPs.
Along came the SERP-gamers, who thought to themselves that they would “fool” the search engines (Google and Bing – we know that Yahoo! has been absorbed by Bing, right?) by building “fake” bookmarking sites, and bookmarking their web properties. Soon, the search engines caught onto that, and the benefits the “gamers” were deriving all but vanished.
Then, we got some popular forums, and “social networking” sites like Facebook, etc. and things really began to heat up. I don’t know, but there are probably millions of new websites going up every day, and that’s got to put a certain amount of resource taxation on the search engines. You know, to index, and then display the “relevant” results to the searcher, from among all of those sites, both old established ones, and the new ones.
To get to this latest announcement, regarding the +1… In case you didn’t know it, Google has long been tracking the clicks you make on a search result. You may hover your mouse over a result, and see the url for the result on the status bar of your browser, BUT when you actually click on that link, you first send a request straight to a google computer. There, that click is tallied, then you get sent to that url, the website you wanted to go.
If you ask me, your Traffic Master, that’s what I’ll call a “hidden +1″, because those clicks all add up, relative to the search query, to boost the particular clicked result. The more clicks a certain result gets, the higher the search engines will rank it. Almost goes without saying, right?
Sure, I think the “+1″ will generate some “buzz”, just like the Facebook “like” button did, the same way the bookmarking sites did, and so on…
The best thing you can do, as a business website builder/webmaster, is to continue to create genuine, relevant content for your potential visitor. Create a fair amount of it, and submit your sitemap to the search engines, following their guidelines for doing so. If you’re creating content that someone wants to view? They’ll find it…
I hope you found it educational, and RELEVANT, to what you need to profitably build your Extra Cash Systems…
